Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: 

KENNEWICK, WA- Pasco police have released more information regarding a high speed pursuit and arrest from Kennewick on Friday.

Officers say they originally believed their suspect, Geovanny Blanco, carjacked the white Nissan Quest minivan he used for most of the chase. Turns out, the van was not stolen and the woman Blanco was driving with was not a victim either.

Josie Echo Bear was arrested for allegedly assisting Blanco with stealing the original Honda Accord that started the entire ordeal.
